International Short Film Festival in Berlin Subways
In cooperation with BERLINER FENSTER, interfilm Berlin has been taking art culture to subterranean Berlin: On over 4,000 monitors in Berlin subways, 1.6 million passengers turn into an underground movie audience for one week, and can vote for their favorite of 14 films.
A total of 60,000 citizens voted during the last festivals, giving the short film genre quite a popularity push.
During past years, GOING UNDERGROUND has become the largest audience-award festival in the world, presenting short films to people of all ages, cultures and social backgrounds.
From elaborately produced animation to reality films – anything goes as long as the three prerequisites for submision are met: Films must be no longer than 90 seconds, be comprehensible without any sound, and devoid of sex or violence.
A tremendous challenge to most filmmakers, and often resulting in an impressive array of strirring, imaginative, suspenseful and fantastical films.
